The CIA is A-OK in My Book

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2006, 10:07 am

The Wall Street Journal has an article that says the 3rd-ranking official in the CIA attended poker games in a “hospitality suite” at the Watergate Hotel that is the focus of a federal criminal investigation. The investigation has to do with an unindicted co-conspirator of former Congressman Randy “Duke” Cunningham, who pleaded guilty to bribery charges last year.

The CIA official is named Kyle “Dusty” Foggo and…wait…”Dusty Foggo”? That’s really his name? Ouch. Anyway, the investigation is looking into allegations that Brent Wilkes, a defense contractor who allegedly had dealings with Cunningham, and another contractor who pleaded guilty to bribing Cunningham, brought prostitutes to the suite for the enjoyement of Cunningham and other congressmen from the mid-nineties through last year. This is where the poker games allegedly took place, though a CIA spokesperson said there were no prostitutes at the games. The spokesperson, Jennifer Millerwise Dyck…wait…”Jennifer Millerwise Dyck”? That’s really her name? Ouch.

Anyway, she said, “Mr. Foggo maintains that government contracts for which he was responsible were properly awarded and administered. If he attended occasional card games with friends over the years, Mr. Foggo insists they were that and nothing more.”

OK, the CIA executive in charge of the pursestrings was hanging around a hotel suite paid for by a defense contractor convicted of bribing a Congressman. And there’s talk that hookers were provided to gentlemen who frequented this room. But nothing of that sort happened when Mr. Foggo was there. All he did was play some friendly and wholesome poker. Nothing at all wrong with that. And that’s the offical policy of the Central Intelligence Agency. We have yet another powerful ally in the fight to make poker legal nationwide. If you don’t like it, just run off an join the Taliban, why don’t you?

    “Dusty Foggo” sounds like something you’d do to a freakish farmer’s daughter from Oklahoma.

    If we stop playing poker and getting hookers, the terrorists have already won.
